X400 Elite Alarmswitch
Centralized Alarm Monitoring System


The X400 Elite is a microprocessor controlled low cost alarm indicator panel for use with level indicators, hazard controls and limit switch sensors.  The X400 accepts signals from different sources in up to 8 zones, and is able to cause alarm and shutdown of the machine when an alarm condition has been detected.  


Alarm and status LEDs on the lid of the X400 provide quick location of alarm conditions.  Alarm muting can be performed at the panel or by an optional remote push button to silence external alarms.  If the system is muted, it will automatically reactivate when a new alarm is triggered.  Testing can also be activated at the panel, providing full system verification.

 Touchswitch Belt Misalignment Sensor

Belt Misalignment Sensor

The Touchswitch™ is an electromechanical limit-switch with no moving parts, which detects tracking and misalignment problems on bucket elevators and conveyors. Unlike a rub block that utilizes friction (heat) to activate, the Touchswitch is pressure sensitive for safer and more reliable monitoring.

M300 Sensor

Speed Switch Sensor

The M300 Slipswitch is a simple inductive shaft speed monitoring device. The self-contained unit has a single set point, which signals when the shaft speed has dropped by 20% of normal running speed. It is used for detecting dangerous slow downs and underspeed on conveyors, bucket elevators, airlocks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other machines.

More Info

Binswitch Plug/Choke Sensor

Plug / Choke Sensor

The Binswitch detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos and can be used as a plug or choke detector in chutes, conveyors and elevator legs.

More Info

Rotary Level Indicator

Rotary Level Indicators

The Roto-Level series are electromechanical rotary level indicators for point level indication of bulk granular solids in bins, tanks, silos.  Available with vertical extensions up to 14 feet.

More Info

Autoset Level Indicator

Auto-Set™ Level Indicators

The Auto-Set™ series are RF capacitance point level indicators with push button calibration and material build-up compensation for high, intermediate or low level detection of liquid, powders or free-flowing granular solids.  Once the unit is calibrated for a specific application, it never has to be re-calibrated.  Available with vertical extensions up to 33 feet.

  Preventative maintenance can help reduce the risk of equipment failure and consequent downtime.  When it comes to  
  monitoring your bucket elevators and conveyors, 4B can recommend the ideal combination of sensors and monitoring  
  systems to suit your requirements and budget.  
  4B has an extensive range of CSA / ATEX / IECEx approved hazard monitoring systems, misalignment switches,  
  bearing temperature monitors and level controls.  4B can offer you anything from a replacement sensor, to a fully  
  integrated hazard monitoring system which can be operated as a stand-alone device or connected to your PLC.  
  And if you do not want to install hazard monitoring sensors on every piece of equipment in your plant straightaway, 4B  
  can offer you a scalable solution that can be expanded as your needs grow.
